2 Big Streamers Dominating Gaming Niche on Twitch

By StreamOZ · May 05, 2022

Twitch is getting bigger every week, and we can see that there are only a few big players in the "gaming streaming" industry. How is this possible, and what’s their secret for  staying on top of the game for so many years? 

Today, we will talk about two biggest gaming streamers and how they have stayed on top. Along with this, we have created an interesting blog on how to get started on Twitch and what are the secrets of streaming in 2024.


Let's start!


Ninja - Top-tier Steamer on Twitch

The most famous streamer in the world, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, still ranks first in the standings with 200+ million watched hours, even if he sees a slight decline to the bottom of 200 thousand viewers. However, he capitalizes on users connected simultaneously to his streams, peaking 1+ million concurrent viewers. Take a look at the strategy of Ninja and if you want to stay on top of the game, then you should keep tracking the actions of this streamer. 

Ninja always streams at a scheduled time and never disappoints fans. He even streams for additional hours. When a streamer over-delivers during their live-stream, he/she will get a huge fan-base. 

Check the image below - you see that Ninja has almost 19 million followers only on Twitch. He is on the road to reaching 20 million after a few streams.


Shroud - Man of ‘shy’

He has lower numbers when compared to Ninja with almost 11 million followers. However, Michael “shroud” Grzesiek is one of the most popular streamers of Playerunk's Battlegrounds. We are talking about 39.2 million hours viewed and a peak of 156,176 spectators at the same time. These results would appeal to many.  A few years ago, the streamer received a 30-day ban on PUBG due to an infringement, but he immediately recovered by counting that together with “Dr. Disrespect.” He is the only personality to have a loot box in his name within the game.
